EDA Tools Software Engineer
The Frame is a critical component of every wafer that is manufactured by Intel. The frame contains silicon structures that are needed by various lithographic tools for optimal functionality. Intel's Frame Automation Team is responsible for developing automation and specifications to support the Frame.
To keep the process going, we work closely with engineers from Lithography, Process Integration, Device Physics, Circuit Design, and RET (Resolution Enhancement Technology) teams to understand and establish frame structures. We design frame structures so that the next generation of Intel products are the best they can be.
In this job, a typical day might look like the following:
Talk to process integration and lithography engineers to understand details of semiconductor processing steps.
Talk to a lithography module engineer (scanner alignment, registration/overlay module) to understand tool requirements.
Create design specification/rules that allow creation of metrology marks that are compatible with module requirements and process limitations.
Create new software modules or use existing software modules to create CAD layouts for key building block of the Frame.
To thrive in our team, you must:
Be self-driven and highly motivated and always look for ways to improve the team's work
Demonstrated communication skills to convey complex technical information to both technical and non-technical audiences.
Be a curious learner.
Willing to learn about details of semiconductor manufacturing process.
Comprehend capabilities and limitations of semiconductor process, requirements of lithography tools, and produce design specifications or software modules under tight deadlines and stringent quality expectations.
Flexible mindset, be agile enough to absorb constantly changing requirements and make appropriate trade-offs in terms of scope and schedule.
Not let roadblocks frustrate you but let them motivate you to find the best solution.
What we offer:
We give you opportunities to transform technology and create a better future, by delivering products that touch the lives of every person on earth.
As a global leader in innovation and new technology, we foster a collaborative, supportive, and exciting environment where the brightest minds in the world come together to achieve exceptional results.
We offer a competitive salary and financial benefits such as bonuses, life and disability insurance, opportunities to buy Intel stock at a discounted rate, and Intel stock awards (eligibility at the discretion of Intel Corporation).
We provide benefits that promote a healthy, enjoyable life: excellent medical plans, wellness programs, and amenities, time off, recreational activities, discounts on various products and services, and much more creative.
